I will breakdown my review into 2 parts. The resort itself and then the diving.

The Resort:

I first chance across Grand Luley when I was googling for a dive resort in Manado. The advertisement was pretty impressive and slick, and it seemed like a luxury resort. So I decided to

How much do the dive center charge for equipment rental?
Better contact them directly, as we did bring our own gear. They have equipment available.
0 votes
does this hotel have a house reef where it's possible to do some snorkeling?
No house reef. All dive and snorkle activities start from their jetty with boats. Between the resort and the sea is a large mangrove forest.

I have an early flight out, at 06.00. Will I be able to get to the airport via the airport shuttle so early in the morning. If not, will I be able to organize alternative transport to the airport?
They will arrange a shuttle for you!

what is the cost of airport transfer? can you swim in the sea here ? what is the cost of a snorkelling trip (my partner does not dive) and how far in advance does in need to be sorted ? we only have one full day .
- You cannot really swim there. There is no beach. - Just let you know that my wife had never dived before and they let us book the "Discovery Package". It includes an introduction in the pool, one dive around Bunaken, the boat and the lunch. It was 1.000.000 rupiah per person last time I've been there.
